I like the practical manner of these South African shoots, moving, running and shooting. Using game targets not silly little round circles ...

Look like great fun.

I'll be there for the shoot in South Africa and I might also mention that the BGR club of NSW are trialling some South African style events to make our shooting more hunting orientated and, hopefully, a lot more fun!

Sounds a good idea Bob. Introducing "practical" style events.

I have it on good authority that the Australian team of Andrew Hepner, Bob Christopher and Greame Wright was the winning team in the International Big Games Rifle Club shoot in south Africa last weekend. Bob Christopher was second out right with Graeme Wright Third. Great effort by the guys and congratulations to all competitors.

Bob Christopher and I catch up every now and then in his professional role and always manage to get some 'gun talk' ,he advised he was off to SA when i last spoke to him.

Its no small wonder that he does really well in these shoots as the amount of big bore shots he takes and he does every week is amazing,really amazing!He must have an iron shoulder!
